Lawyers Against LonelinessWorld Cup of Chambers

Dog of the Day

“I wanted to submit a couple of photos of my dog Ruby,” writes Caroline Isaacs Smith of Axiom.

“The first is a message to the NHS to say thank you, taken with the rest of the Greenwich based Sausage Patrol. The second is her napping in her usual spot, taking a break from the stresses of daily locked down life.”

Emily Daniels, a trainee solicitor at Reed Smith, writes: “May I introduce you to my new (trainee) receptionist, Merry, and my new (trainee) secretary, Vivi. I think they were nervous on their first day on the job, though, as they fell asleep after three minutes of IT training.”

Funky Sensation by Disclosure will take you back to disco floors of the 1970s and 1980s, whether you lived through those times or not. It is an edit of Gwen McCrae’s 1981 classic by the same name.

Released in 2018, it can be seen as a precursor to the duo’s newest EP, Ecstasy, which came out a few weeks ago. In it, the brothers who form Disclosure continue to explore their funky electro sound. We recommend listening to the new album as well, for a disco-themed afternoon of boogey. -Ana de Liz

Video of the day

We are very open to creativity – anything that uplifts or diverts.

What we don’t want is too many firm-branded videos talking about how seamlessly you have transitioned to a new way of working, please.
